Abstract  

Reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography with u.v. detection was applied for rapid and sensitive determination of pertechnetate in99Mo/99mTc generator eluates, using a mixture solvent of acetonitrile and 0.04M aqueous acetate buffer (1/1) containing a few volume percentage of 0.5 M tetra-n-butylammonium hydroxide as the mobile phase. Employing a -bondapak C13 column, the TcO 4 species was separated, monitored with absorbance at 254 nm, and observed at the retention time of 3.5 min. The detection limit was found to be 5.2·10–10 g of Tc for each injection. Total Tc contents in the99mTc eluates from clinically-used99Mo/99mTc generator were analyzed by this technique. The99mTc (99Tc) species was separated from the contaminant99Mo. This method was found to be useful for the purification of99mTc (99Tc) as well as the determination of total Tc content.
